Responsibility of the churches
Climate change: an ethical and theological challenge
The environmental crisis also reveals a theological crisis: humans as "created co-creators" are both one of the causes and part of the environmental crisis.
What we need are new, or perhaps just renewed, visions of being human as part of a revitalized theology of creation. According to American theologian and physicist Ian Barbour, visions can instigate people to successfully change their lifestyle - towards greater sustainability, frugality and simplicity.

"The spiritual challenge of today is to regain our awareness of the measure of life - everywhere in the world."
"The responsibility towards our descendants creates the obligation for us to act sustainably with respect to the creation bestowed upon us. By establishing energy cooperatives, people take action and set practical examples of preserving God's creation."
Christian Schad, Church President of the Protestant Church of Palatinate
"The 'Project Developer for Energy Cooperatives' pilot training project combines the raising of awareness of preserving God's creation with the hands-on commitment of people to disseminating the use of renewable energy."
